This is primarily a teaching position but also involves regular professional expectations associated with language teaching. Instructors have 16 in-class contact hours and 4 tutoring hours per week, and are expected to maintain regular office hours. In addition, instructors participate in ongoing program and curriculum development. Experience with pedagogical technologies and curriculum design are an advantage. The program is intended to provide incoming university students with the skills to achieve a B2 level of language proficiency on the Common European Framework (CEFR).
